    I haven't seen anything to the contrary.
    Create a fresh drive image before making system changes, in case you need to start over!

    There is a documented method that has not been removed by MS that allows the installation of Win 7 from an Upgrade version of Win 7 without a previous version of Windows installed.

    Yeah. I new about that website, but it is dated 2009. I was really looking for something more recent, but I can't find anything specific on this Windows 7 Upgrade trick with recent info. However, if MS never took that website down for telling people how to do it, then one would have to assume that the trick still works. Thank you.
